*Please note: as a freelance translator I often work for translation agencies. These projects may therefore be part of larger translation projects, in which I was involved "only" as a translator and not as a contracting party to the end client.


For transcription jobs, I use audio software in combination with Dragon Naturally Speaking. While using my voice as a tool for typing, I am able to handle the audio manually, which is considerably speeding up the whole process. I accept both transcription+translation projects, as well as transcription only.
